Jamaica's Sunshine Girls went down 63-50 to hosts England in game two of their three test series in Manchester, England, yesterday.

The series is now tied at 1-1 after the Sunshine Girls' 66-49 victory in the opening match on Tuesday.

Captain and Player of the Match Ama Agbeze led the way in defence for England while Joanne Harten and Kadeen Corbin were relentless in their shooting accuracy with 91 per cent .

Harten and Corbin were ruthless under the posts as the Roses forged a 10-goal advantage to lead 27-17 at the end of the first quarter.

Sunshine Girls shooter Jhaniele Fowler-Reid could not repeat the dominance she showed in the opening match, with Agbeze giving her a tougher test inside the circle as England extended their lead to 32-20 at half time.

The deciding game is set for Sunday.
